GIS Based Integration of the Health Emergency Services Regional Network in Morocco

Ibtissam Khalfaoui, and Amar Hammouche

Abstract—The aim of this research is to improve the Moroccan Health Emergency Services (HESs) at the regional level. To do that, the HESs-RN (Regional Network) Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping was established on the basis of 1) proposing the structuring of HESs in the form of the HESs-RN modeled as a graph 2) modeling the HESs-RN by considering a medical emergency event as the Occurrence of events of Health Emergency (OHE), 3) proposing a Decision Support Model (DSM) to manage and control at best the different HESs-RN’s OHE, and in particular to determine, in real time, the fastest path for the patient’s transfer. This DSM supposes that the HES-RN nodes cooperate autonomously using best practices HES protocols and that they are regulated by the Health Emergency Assistance node.

Index Terms—Ambulance routing, decision support model, health regional network modelling, GIS mapping.
